Jewish Family Service of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties Job Seekers Success Group

Jewish Family Service of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties is offering a Job Seekers Success Group for active job seekers who are unemployed, underemployed or seeking a career change.  The next group will be held on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at JFS, 150-A West High Street, Somerville, NJ. The topic for this session is “Preparing Yourself for the Employment Market as the Next Decade Approaches” presented by Harold Levin, Staffing Manager, SmartStaff Personnel.

JFS, in collaboration with Dress for Success is also offering a special Foundations of Success “For Women Only” Program on Friday, September 20, 2019 from 10:00 am – 12 noon at JFS, 150-A West High Street, Somerville, NJ. The topic is “Change your Mind” presented by Jeanne Rohach, Foundations of Success Workshops Coordinator. If a situation falls short of perfect, do you think of it as a total failure?  Do you single out a single negative detail and dwell on it exclusively?  Do you discount the compliments you receive?  Do you criticize yourself and look for faults rather than strengths?  Harmful thinking patterns and self-defeating thoughts erode self-esteem and hold us back from pursing goals.  During this workshop we will explore the forms of self-defeating thoughts as well as techniques to untwist self-destructive thinking.  Come prepared to learn a variety of ways to change your mind and gain insight into managing self-talk!  Advanced registration is required for this program.

These groups are offered free of charge and is open to the entire community.  Funding for this program is provided by grants from The Arnold A. Schwartz Foundation, Affinity Federal Credit Union and Magyar Bank.
